Think you got it all good, next thing you know, your in the slums;
Go ’round like its alright, but feels like a knife in your state of mind;
Hold your head high, even though your mind is all low;
Do what you do to take away your pain, but it always leaves you the same;
Wake up everyday not ready to face the day ahead of you;
Its a sickening fear inside you, that you don’t know how to tell anyone else;
Its darkness wraps around spine, towards your mind, and spreads through you like a disease and leaves you without a state of mind.
We go back to the past, we look at all that happened, you know I had a few girls, had some heartbreaks, had some confused times;
Most times we felt like we don’t wanna neva end, but what could have we done, we was just young, look at it now it was just like our life just began;
We moved on, but I bet you still reminiscing, and I ain’t going to lie, I still do, but as I reflect there was mistakes that were made, and we have learned, made us who we are today;
No matter who we all with, all I just want to shout is want to see you all happy with no matter who you with, got hurt bad and I don’t regret it it’s a lesson and I hurt some bad, and I just need you to listen we was young, and I regret the stuff I did;
You probably wouldn’t understand the person I grew into, It’s been a long time coming, I’m happier than I ever been before, and you need some help, don’t hesitate to hit me up, and if I hit you up its just to see how you been doin’ lately, and I ain’t calling to start a new relation, it’s just been a long time coming, and just remember all the been through its preparin’ us, for what we got comin’.
The top is far, and you’ve been stuck at the bottom far too long;
The light barely shines toward your direction, the hope is weak;
Great ambition, and so many love you, so why are you so weak;
Life passes you by, and you struggle to keep your feet;
No one seems to understand you, and you wonder why it’s like this;
Your just so busy, and there is no time for rest, it makes you weak;
You feel like your fighting a war, but what war are you fighting;
No one seems to understand, nor do you seem to understand life;
It’s a complicated matter, but it tears your soul apart;
Your lost and it’s been years, can’t seem to find yourself;
But this pain feels like infinity.
Been a rough few years, looked up to God prayed that he remove the enemies from my life;
And before you it, I started losing friends, left and right, it just don’t feel right;
You believe in these people around you, and they succeed an then you just ain’t shit no more;
Then when your falling down there’s no one around, then they still expect everything from you;
Now I just say fuck’em, and think ain’t it funny how shit change around.
I wanna see if I can make you reach things unobtainable;
I just want to give you what’s better than better;
Can’t deny that I want you, but I’ll lie if I have too;
We already know girl, we’ve loved and we’ve lost;
Let me peak into your nature, and all I know is;
She’s about to earn some bragging rights tonight;
And all I say is girl, take pride in what you wanna do;
You know I’m here for you, but tonight I could be a memory;
I hate sleeping alone, so girl I’m here if you ever need company;
Set the pace girl, and I’ll adjust to your desires, give me a chance to make you remember me.
Take a look into my eyes, and tell me what you see;
And don’t lie to me, cause ill see it in your eyes;
Don’t read me wrong, cause girl I want to be your man;
Treat you right, see you shine, watch you smile;
Don’t worry girl, I’ll be here for you and watch over you;
Cause baby girl, I just want to see you well off.
Wish you could treat her different but ain’t it late now;
You care about her but why didn’t you show it;
Now you look back and say what was I thinking;
Then you now see she smiling, and you thank god;
You happy for her, but you like damn, wish it was me putting smile on that beautiful face;
Now you just left to reminisce.
